How will you find your next role in ICT?
Will you scour Seek for particular job titles? Take a look at LinkedIn and follow companies you like? Perhaps you’ll sign up with a recruiter?
All of these are viable methods for finding a job in the ICT sector, but according to Craige Pendleton-Browne, Chief Technology Officer at Australian forex payment company OFX (formerly OzForex), there’s one method that beats all the others hands down: a personal recommendation.
In other words, it’s not necessarily about what you know, but who you know.
“Recommendations are wonderful because you’re getting a pre-qualified candidate,” he said. “If you’ve got a good person recommending someone, they’re usually recommending a good person. I love recommendations. I’d much rather go on a recommendation than anything else.”
Pendleton-Browne leads a team of almost 80 techies in the Sydney office and around the world. These employees work in product development and engineering in the fast-paced world of currency transfers.
